Mrs. Gomes was my kindergarten teacher, twice! She always said she held us back because she couldn't give us up. I loved Mrs. Gomes. I teach because she inspired me to want to be like her. When I set up my classrooms I always try to envoke in my environment the feeling of creativity, respect and safety I felt in her classroom. I love you Mrs. Gomes you made a difference in my life and I hope that I make a difference in children's lives like you. Rest in Peace

Joyce,
I was so sorry to hear of your mother's passing. I know it must of been so difficult being a distance away. Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers and now your mother feels no pain. I am sorry I can not attend the wake and funeral as I will be away but just know my thoughts are with you at this sad time.
With much sympathy,
Lisa Soder

Please accept my sympathy. Jen was an excellent teacher beloved by parents, students and teachers. She was a skilled professional with a huge heart. Jen also was a wonderful member of the Fitzgerald community always willing to give of her time and many talents. Jen was soft spoken but firm in her beliefs and always put the children first. And, she and Larry were wonderful dancers!

To The Gomes Family,
I have so many warm memories of your mom. The many times I spent over at your home, ( both Belmont and Wayland), have left me with a kind fulfillment. I remember riding the Shetland pony in Wayland in your back yard, the first Halloween in Wayland, ( Laurie and I went as "hippies"), and the many sleep overs. I still enjoy a giggle now and then from these "old days".
Thank you for including me. Love Diane
